The editorial ethics of the journal "System Analysis and Management in Biomedical Systems" was developed in the light of the Declaration of the Association of Scientific Editors and Publishers "Ethical Principles of Scientific Publications", taking into account the Code of Conduct and the Best Practice Guidelines for the Journal Editors - Committee on Publication Ethics.
Editorial Board SAUBMS responsibly approaches the task of maintaining scientific reputation, guided by the principles of scientific, objectivity, professionalism, impartiality and does everything possible to ensure the quality of scientific publications, while carefully treating the author's position and copyright.
In its activity, the editorial board is responsible for the publication of copyright works, which imposes the necessity of following the following fundamental principles:
· The editorial decisions on acceptance or refusal to publish an article should be based on the importance of the article, its originality, clarity of presentation, the reliability of the information contained in it and its proximity to the journal's topic.
· The editorial board is obliged to respect the author and his work respectfully, to carry out all contacts with the authors exclusively in a benevolent, correct tone.
· The editorial staff should evaluate the intellectual content of manuscripts regardless of race, gender, religious beliefs, origin, citizenship, social status or political preferences of authors.
· Unpublished data obtained from submitted manuscripts should not be used for personal purposes or transferred to third parties without the written consent of the author. Information or ideas obtained during editing and related to possible benefits should be kept confidential and not used for personal gain.
· The editorial staff must ensure that all published articles and reviews are reviewed by specialists with the necessary qualifications.
· The editorial office is obliged to coordinate with the authors all the changes to avoid copyright infringement.
· The editorial board should not allow publication of information if there is sufficient reason to believe that it is plagiarism.
· The editorial staff submits the comments of the reviewer to the authors in full if they do not contain offensive or libelous remarks.
· Editors should strive to ensure that the peer review in their journal is fair, objective and timely.
· The editorial office should not leave unanswered claims concerning the examined manuscripts or published materials, and also in the event of a conflict situation, take all necessary measures to restore the violated rights.

The reviewer carries out a scientific examination of copyright materials, as a result of which his actions should be impartial in nature, consisting in the following principles:
· The manuscript received for review should be considered as a confidential document that can not be passed on for review or discussion to third parties without authorization from the editorial staff.
· The reviewer is obliged to give an objective, reasoned assessment of the results of the research, refraining from hostile, slanderous or humiliating comments.
· Unpublished data obtained from submitted manuscripts should not be used by the reviewer for personal purposes.
· A reviewer who does not possess, in his opinion, sufficient qualification for the evaluation of the manuscript, or can not be objective, for example, in case of a conflict of interest with the author or organization, should notify the editor of this request to exclude him from the process of reviewing this manuscript.
Principles by which the author of scientific publications should be guided
· The authors of the article should provide reliable results of the conducted studies. Knowingly erroneous or falsified statements are unacceptable.
· Authors should ensure that the results of the study, as described in the manuscript provided, are completely original. Borrowed fragments or statements must be made with a mandatory indication of the author and the source. Excessive borrowing, as well as plagiarism in any form, including unformulated quotes, rephrasing or assigning rights to the results of other people's research, are unethical and unacceptable. The originality of the text should be at least 75%.
· It is necessary to recognize the contribution of all persons who somehow influenced the course of the study, in particular, the article should contain references to all the works that were important in the study.
· Authors should not provide a journal with a manuscript that was sent to another journal and is pending, as well as an article already published in another journal.
· All persons who have made a significant contribution to the study should be identified as co-authors of the article. Among co-authors it is inadmissible to indicate persons who did not participate in the study.
· If the author discovers significant errors or inaccuracies in the article at the stage of its consideration or after its publication, it should notify the editorial office of this as soon as possible.
The magazine reserves the right to reject any manuscript submitted to the publication that does not comply with the principles listed above.
